In the middle of a binge session

Hi everyone!

It is my 1st time on this website and my 1st post. I've been through eating disorders these last 7 years, with periods of up and downs :) It's going much better (I have a "crisis" once a month more or less and I'm not obsessed with food anymore).

But today I am weak. I came back from my home country yesterday evening (I live abroad) and I am full of emotions and past feelings. Not the best memories to be honest. And instead of coping and facing these uncomfortable feelings, I chose the option of the loser: I overeat and purge.

I know that sucks and sounds very childish. I feel ashamed of my behaviour. I just wanted to share and a bit of support :)

If you know what you are doing, then you know how to stop it :)
If you feel like overeating and you know it is wrong, try to divide your attention in something else like running or cleaning up your house.

In regards to your memories, I would suggest talking about it with someone, maybe a therapist if this is really stopping you from doing the right things.

But I really respect it that you write this down here and deal with it! Also proud that you can see when you are doing things like this. Some people lack the ability to look how they are dealing with things, and you know how you deal with it 8)

Thanks @Confusedd for your kind and encouraging reply :) You are right. It is the kind of things you don't realise by yourself, unless someone tells you. Take care!
